I was lucky enough to spend the weekend sewing with my Besties, unfortunately this doesn't happen often.
This little black dress was too long, the neck was too high and it had funny little capped sleeves.
With some help from said Besties we shortened the dress and cut away the sleeves and lowered the neck.
We bound the neck and sleeve edges, added "dust barts" (bust darts, OK so there was alcohol involved!) and added a pocket for interest.
We added a triangle and a few buttons.
Now I have a fabulous LBD.
